The biennial International Conference of Racing Analysts and Veterinarians (ICRAV) is the principal forum for interested parties to address scientific, veterinary and welfare issues and regulatory issues facing the racing industry. The Conference facilitates the dissemination of knowledge and ideas vital to maintaining the integrity of racing and the welfare of the horse.
